Course content and structure

Course content and structure

The courses of the first part of the study program (two years) take place at the Science and Health Campus in Hamburg's HafenCity with a view of the Marco Polo Terraces, the river Elbe, the Elbphilharmonie and the harbor. The second, clinical study section (three years) takes place on the campus of our clinic partner, Helios Kliniken Schwerin. The practical year, which is planned for the third part of the study, can also be completed by students at the Helios Kliniken Schwerin as well as at another approved clinic.

The medical examinations, which follow each of the three stages of study, place the students in front of the state examination office for health professions of the Hamburg authority for health and consumer protection.

In addition, all students complete a three-month nursing internship, training in first aid and a four-month internship (medical internship) during the medical education.

»First Stage of Studies/Preclinical Studies«

The first part of the course lasts four semesters, is subject-oriented and teaches theoretical basics such as anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, histology as well as further basics of natural and social sciences. The first section of the course, also known as »Preclinic«, prepares students for further study with lectures, seminars and internships. Those offer insights into the subsequent medical activity already at the beginning of the study. At this stage, however, students also come into direct contact with the practice, for example during a three-month nursing internship in the hospital. In addition, there are regular practical assignments in general medical practices. The study has a modular structure. The students take an exam after each module. If this exam is passed, the students are admitted to the first part of the medical exam.

»Second Stage of Studies / Clinical Studies«

When the first part of the medical exam is passed, the second part of the study begins. The so-called clinical phase comprises six semesters. The modules are topic and organ related and interdisciplinary. Our students complete the clinical phase on the campus of our practice partner, Helios Kliniken Schwerin. There they practice dealing with patients and learn to think across disciplines. The theoretical modules of the second stage of study are organ-centered, ie assigned to individual organs, and are thematically detailed.

»Third Stage of Study/Practical Year«

The Practical Year (PJ) is the third and final stage of study in human medicine. It takes place in the eleventh and twelfth semesters and can be completed either at our practice partner, Helios Kliniken Schwerin, or at another approved hospital. The PJ is divided into three 16-week units, the so-called tertials. In the course of these tertiary studies, the PJ students must become acquainted with the three departments of internal medicine, surgery and a hospital department of their choice. In the foreground of the Practical Year is the application of the theoretical and practical knowledge of the patient as well as the processes in everyday hospital life.

Career Perspectives

Career Perspectives

As a graduate of MSH, you can apply for the license to practice medicine if you have completed all parts of the human medicine program under the current licensing regulations for physicians, have passed all three parts of the medical exams and can prove that you meet all other requirements. With the license to practice, you receive the state approval to be a physician independently and on your own responsibility.

Your professional perspectives as a doctor are wide-ranging, and the demand in clinics and in private practice is particularly high. Specialist demand has been high for years, especially in rural areas. For this reason, the majority of medical graduates complete a five- to six-year specialist training after completing their studies, which determines the thematic focus of their later field of work. This offers the possibility of a practice in a practice or a hospital career.

Even beyond the classic medical professions, the state examination in human medicine offers a variety of perspectives:     

  • Research graduates can take up positions in research institutions at universities, medical research facilities, the pharmaceutical industry or drug development.     
  • In occupational and occupational medicine, you are preoccupied with occupational and environmental health damage as well as with occupational diseases, the reintegration of chronically ill employees and the assessment of the ability of employees to work.     
  • As an intermediary between the medical departments and the hospital administration, you combine business management aspects with medical expertise in quality management in order to design and optimize administrative processes.     
  • After a corresponding advanced training in the field of medical technology, you can act on an interface function between medicine, management and product development. Do you have an affinity to computer science? Then you shape the future sector of e-health.     
  • A working day without patients is also possible, for example in the insurance industry (health, life and accident insurance), with authorities, the social psychiatric service, the German Medical Association or the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians
